North Dakota food banks and pantries.

If you are struggling or need help, then a North Dakota food pantry can provide assistance. They may have canned goods, perishable items, government commodities, food, and more in your time of need. The centers may be able to provide qualified low income and struggling families and individuals with free meals, food, and other support.

Each location will have their own rules and conditions in place. For example, a pantry may limit how frequently someone can use the service or may limit how much food is available. However each location will do its best to not turn anyone away from receiving help.

Centers can provide different types of items, including cereal and snacks, perishable food, canned fruit & vegetables, pasta and sauces, and more. Many of the beneficiaries are families with low-income children, seniors, disabled, and others in a crisis.

Also many of the pantries in North Dakota will have details on state and national government and public food assistance programs such as SNAP, school lunches, or food stamps. Other resource available may include clothing, such as winter coats, free holiday meals, and programs such as Meals on Wheels. Locations also partner with churches, non-profit organizations, and charities.
